Widgets are a way to use the data retrieved from data sets in a report.

They range from data widgets, such as a graph or table, to report widgets, such as page refresh and image.

  • Graph: Display data in a graph view.
  • Table: Display data in a table view.
  • Summary: Display a summary of the data in a table format.
  • Indicator: Display individual indicators, like traffic lights, for metric results.
  • Text: Output text to the report.
  • All Data: Get all the data for a data set in raw format. This allows for greater flexibility as users can create their own views and widgets if desired.
